Called out to a installation today...

British Gas already disconnected Kitchen at a FCU.... :eek:

(Supply to Kitchen had stopped working)

5 double sockets, supply the usual suspects (5KW loading)..

Beautiful Kitchen fitted by eastern Eurpoeans.. :D

The FCU is a spur off a bedroom socket... :^O

British gas disconnected because the wiring was cross wired and the owners were getting electric shocks, everywhere.....................

Solution looks like a partial rewire (External feed, to gain access to all but 1 socket, without destroying Kitchen, the existing FCU feed, hopefully will supply the 1 double socket)

I might add they changed the CU as well.........

They didn't RCD the sockets (only the shower), I suspect the sockets tripped the RCD and they moved them onto the non RCD side..

Yeah - for their cheap prices.

Sooner or later, they`re going to kill someone, or cause a house to burn down. :eek: :(:_| X(

And that`ll probably be our fault, for having prices which the customers consider "too high":O

Ext - Have they got certification for this work????? EIC / MWC / BRCC??

Mrs. KME has a theory..........

The eastern europeans are coming over here, and doing these jobs badly on purpose. :eek:

Back home, Uncle Kasparov is out of work. His nephews are attempting to kill us off, so that uncle Kasparov,

THE UNDERTAKER,

will have a steady stream of customers. ?:| :eek: ] :)
